Abstract/Contents:Defines renovation as "turf improvement that involves partial or complete replanting without total tillage of the soil." Recommends that renovation be considered "when the condition turf stand is: severely damaged by pests, predominately [predominantly] covered by weeds (broadleaf or grassy), of a poor quality turf due to excess thatch or compaction, or if a combination of these conditions exist [exists]." Details potential methods for beginning the renovation process, highlighting site evaluation, species selection, weed eradication, soil compaction, overseeding, and irrigation. Mentions that the potential necessity of fertilizer applications might be determined by a soil test. Concludes that "when time is extremely limited one can either prime or pre-germinate the seed for a quicker establishment," identifying a potential method for doing so.
